Brief_description
Dam receiving treated sewage effluent, and industrial effluent treatment ponds; some fringing reedy vegetation; dam has open water, ponds completely covered with water hyacinth Eichhornia. Good selection of bird species recorded, but number of species apparently declining in summer and winter. Counts of Yellowbilled Duck and Egyptian Goose declining in both seasons, and of Whitebreasted Cormorant, Redknobbed Coot and Dabchick in winter. Hadeda and Sacred Ibis increasing in winter. Good numbers of White- backed Duck recorded in winter, when numbers of Spurwinged Goose, Cattle Egret and African Jacana also peak. Goliath Heron regular. Threats include encroachment of alien vegetation, agriculture, and domestic sewage and industrial waste pollution.
